been the hassan case, the marathon bombing in boston. these were domestic individuals that were in contact with people overseas, and we did not catch those. how did those slip through the cracks? how do we connect those dots? how could we have done that better? and is the fbi really capable of doing domestic intelligence? >> i think one of the things that has happened over time, the last decade or two, is that the definition of the national security community has really broadened. during the cold war, it was state, defense, cia. if you had that group of agencies together, you pretty much had the situation covered. now, you have dhs. one of the major features of intelligence reform, in the commission report by silberman and robb, was to try to rope the fbi more into this process, because they had a habit of delegating investigations to the field. everybody was doing their stuff on a yellow legal pad and never sharing it with anybody lse. i think there is more after this decade that has passed -- more of a culture of intelligence in the fbi. i think that has been one of the accomp
